6 places of my life

If you could tell the story of your life by taking someone to a half dozen places, where would you go?

First to the house I grew up in. My parents lived there for over 25 years & I lved there for 18. It was the center of everything for me growing up.

Second to the park. The local park in my hometown is a large place with lake, miniture golf,a playground, a pool, tennis courts, etc. They do daycamp every summer for ages 3-12 and hire kids starting at age 13. I spent every summer there from ages 3-19, (minus the summer I worked at DisneyWorld). Some of my best childhood memories are of that place. I grew up there. I love taking my own kids there when we are in town.

Third to WVU. So much happened to me in college. I loved it. I saw & did & learned so many things in the 7 years I was there.

Fourth to my last job. I grew a lot at this job. It was not my first 'grown up' job but it was the one where I felt most mature, capable & confident.

Fifth to the hospital where my sons were born. Life altering moments.

Sixth to the house where I live now.

I had such a great time on your journey. Your parents house is just like I would expect. And how did you guess that I liked parks so much. Your's if fasinating. Visiting the college was hoot. And what great things they said about you at work. The hospital was quite a jaunt, but I enjoyed seeing where the little tykes first opened their eyes. Dinner was delightful in your warm and cozy home.

The local park sounds wonderful. I wish they had something like that when my girls were growing up. We need to get back to real neighborhoods where everyone knows each other, cares about each other, and helps each other.

I love the inclusion of the park. I would never have thought to include such a place but it certainly fit.

Those are great stops on the road of your life. The park especially!
